[Fiction] Friday #171
[Fiction] Friday prompt #171 for 3rd September, 2010
“Albert is Dead”
Along with romantic scenes, many writers find writing a scene which involves killing a character a challenge. Here is your chance to write a scene where a truly objectionable character dies.
Step 1. Go and read “Doggone” – a Friday Fiction first draft piece from a week ago.
Step 2. Decide who, what and how Albert dies. It may be accidental, a blundered break in, monster attack – or by one of the many characters within the short story who may or may not have a motive.
Step 3. Now write… You can choose to be as graphic or lyrical as you like, choose to show but not tell – or just tell it all.
The only rule is – Albert must be dead by the end of the story.
